October Dividend Income

After 33 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving 10% annually every year, in good times and bad, I have decided to share my monthly dividend income to show what regular saving and investing can accomplish.

For the month of October I made $3,520; an increase of +9.15% versus this time last year. It’s back to seeing bigger months and it feels good. I’m changing the look of my monthly posts just a bit and will focus strictly on dividends received and I now have included a list of each dividend paid.

  1. Its a combination of factors, the bulk of my investments were made when I rolled over my old company 401K savings circa 2016 so at the time I made big $10K purchases so depending on the yield payouts will vary. I will say since I am older I leaned more towards conservative utilities which have higher payouts.

    There are some I bought when I saw a low price and never added more shares as I didn’t see the value or adding more shares presented more risk.

    Then there are some I am just starting to build. But I do not have a high paying job which makes my investment amounts small so positions grow slowly. Once my kids move out in about 6 years my expenses should drop dramatically and I’ll have more money to invest.

    Today the bulk of my savings still goes into my new company’s $401K plan so when I leave that job I’ll have another pile of cash to invest 🙂

    BTW how is the relocation to attic working out? Winter is coming so hoping it is heated.
